SKORA FIT Training Shoes Review


Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


I recently had the pleasure of trying out some new shoes that although they say they are running shoes, I just used them for walking shoes. I have had both knee's replaced and running is out of the question per the doctor, but they make an excellent walking shoe also. They are lightweight and don't feel like they weigh a ton which is a good thing for me because thick soled shoes make me feel like I am going to tip over. These awesome shoes are from a company called Skora.



You will love wearing these shoes whether you are a runner or a walker because they are perfect for both. I used to hate wearing tennis shoes because I felt like I had so much extra weight holding me down and that is all gone now with these. The other color in this shoe for women is yellow/black but I thought this color suited me better.
 
Main Features:
 
- REALFIT™ last
- Stretch Airmesh upper
- 3D Printed dynamic support pattern
- Asymmetrical lacing
- Internal Archband midfoot support
- Zero-drop construction
- Stitch-down construction
- High Abrasion rubber
- Reflective details
- 16mm Forefoot/Heel stack height

 
These shoes were designed for comfort, speed and agility. FIT features a lightweight, and breathable seamless mesh with support and flexibility where you need it, thanks to a new 3D-printed support pattern and internal arch-band. With asymmetric lacing and generous REALFIT last design, FIT provides increased comfort across the top of the foot and encourages natural foot motion and control.
 
I have to admit it took me a little bit of time to get used to the slightly off why that you tie your shoes up and that the shoes sort of turn into themselves like you have pigeon toes, but once I walked around in them awhile, I could see why they did that. It is almost like walking barefoot but with a little bit of cushion and support. I didn't get that feeling like I might tip over at any moment like I do with a lot of other shoes.
 
Now, I am going to quote this part because I don't think I could have come up with another way of saying it, so please understand that this is the scientific part:
Built on a version of the R01 platform, modified for increased cushioning and comfort, without sacrificing natural running benefits, FIT offers a total stack height of 16mm comprised of a fully-curved, zero-drop outsole made of high abrasion rubber, tuned CM EVA midsole, and antimicrobial insole.
 
 
They also have this program called Refer A Friend. Here is what happens:

and makes a purchase of $75 or more
 
 
I though this might make you feel better about these shoes if you knew that Shape Magazine, Fitness Magazine both loved these shoes and gave them awards. Then Competitor named them the Buyer's Pick for 2014. So, I guess those are impressive stats that show you that what I just explained about the shoes is pretty darn accurate. You can also see the other color for women and then the red and blue ones are for men. They do have other styles of shoes if these aren't what you would like to wear. So, go check them out and see which pair suits you the best!

(SKORA FIT Training Shoes Review) I have never heard of these type of shoes before. From the looks of them, they look like they would be light in weight also.
